God is Gone Up!

MAY 16: Join the Choir of Men & Boys for the final Choral Evensong of the choir program year.

Join the Choir of Men & Boys for the final Choral Evensong of the choir program year, celebrating the Feast of the Ascension.

Sunday, May 16
5pm, Church
In-Person & Livestream

The Preces and Responses are by Jamie Hitel, the Evening Canticles, in B minor, are by Noble, and the anthem is a magnificent setting of ‘God is Gone Up’, by Gerald Finzi. The choir is directed by Jonathan Vaughn, and the organ is played by Jamie Hitel.
This will be the final opportunity to hear the Choir of Men & Boys in action with the current Austin organ, which is retiring in June. Learn more about our organ project, including how to become an ‘organ donor’ here.

This service will be sung in memory of the Rev. Craig Walter Casey (1936-1988). A guiding light and friend to the Christ Church Greenwich Choir of Men & Boys for thirteen years, a Craig W. Casey Memorial Fund was established in 1988 to provide financial assistance to choirboys who might not otherwise be able to participate in a choir trip. Today’s Evensong marks an annual occasion when the choir sings in honor and fond memory of Craig Casey and all that he meant to the Choir of Men & Boys.
